Embedded Talk Review “Non-Volatile Memory Technologies and Applications”
On Wednesday, September 13, 2023, the 16th Embedded Talk was held for the first time again in presence at FAU in Erlangen. The topic was “Non-volatile memory technologies and applications”. Many participants took the opportunity to exchange information about current research and developments in this field.
After a welcome by ESI speaker Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Teich, Dr.-Ing. Stefan Slesazeck (Senior Scientist at NaMLab gGmbH, Dresden) started with his keynote on “Ferroelectric memories for neuromorphic computing”. Afterwards, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Hochberger (Chair for Computer Systems, TU Darmstadt) addressed memristor-based FPGAs and their opportunities and risks in his keynote. Inspired by the exciting keynotes and refreshed by a coffee break, panel discussion moderated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Teich introduced the interactive part of the event. In addition to the two keynote speakers, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dietmar Fey (FAU) also participated in the discussion on the podium. The lively discussions then continued during the poster session, where 8 exhibitors from the two DFG priority programs SPP 2262 (“Memristive Devices for Intelligent Technical Systems”) and SPP 2377 (“Disruptive Main Memory Technologies”) reported on their projects.
For some of the participants, it was their first exchange with researchers from the other DFG SPP. Thus, the event provided important networking opportunities especially for PhD students from FAU ESI.
